We’re continually being impressed by the announcements being made this year during E3 2017. We’ve heard about a lot of great VR experiences coming down the road and one of them is Dragon Ball VR ‘Master the Kamehameha.’
This particular title will be exhibited at the new VR Zone Shinjuku, the largest VR location in Japan by Bandai Namco Entertainment. VR ZONE will open in Shinjuku, Tokyo on July 14th, 2017. We are providing all of Vive hardware for the location as well as tech support for developing VR activities.
Dragon Ball VR ‘Master the Kamehameha’ will be one of many titles to come to HTC Vive along with Mario Kart Arcade GP VR”, “Evangelion VR ‘The Throne of Souls’”, Ghost in the Shell Arise: Stealth Hounds” and “Gundam VR ‘Daiba Assault.’ In the trailer you can see that they are using some peripheral devices to track the hands and movements to summon the powerful fireball.
“VR ZONE SHINJUKU” is the largest VR entertainment facility in Japan with its floor space spanning approximately 3,500 m². By combining “state-of-the-art VR technology” and “exclusively developed sensory machines”, VR ZONE SHINJUKU will provide guests with an array of mind bending VR activities that will enable guests to immerse themselves in “outstandingly real experiences” such as, experiencing firsthand the anime world of their dreams with realness that exceeds their imagination.
In addition to preparing activities that guests will be able to enjoy without VR headsets, the facility also houses eating and drinking spaces with attractive menus that will just scream for a photo shoot, and projection mappings that responds to the guest’s movements. It is truly a surreal entertainment facility that guest will be able to experience with all of their five senses.
While we don’t know much about Dragon Ball VS ‘Master the Kamehameha,’ it’s quite exciting to hear that we might be able to play the game in VR in the near future. There were no announcements made if the Dragon Ball VR will be available outside of Japan.
